The Van der Nents have a nice garden that contains everything a bird needs: trees, fruit plants and a pond to bathe in. The birds in Holland are very tame, especially in our neighborhood. When the family is in the garden, they come as close as half a meter to seek worms for their young. They don't pay any attention to me, but all the more I keep a cautious eye on them. Look Sophia, they don't have chains around their legs, why be so cruel to me then?
I had a major panic attack! Jan and Sophia continued where they left off yesterday: they took me in the car again, closed the door (gently) and Jan started the car. Boy, was I scared. I tried to fly through the car window, to the back seat and on the front mirror. Finally, I crept under Sophia's arm and stayed there, panting. I hate the car. It messes up all my feathers.
